Mets | Owner disses David Wright, Jose Reyes, Carlos Beltran

New York Mets owner Fred Wilpon had some disparaging remarks in a recent interview about 3B David Wright, SS Jose Reyes and OF Carlos Beltran.

Regarding Wright, Wilpon said: "Really good kid. A very good player. Not a superstar."

With Reyes approaching free agency, Wilpon said Reyes expects to receive money similar to Boston Red Sox OF Carl Crawford's seven-year, $142 million deal. "He's had everything wrong with him. He won't get it," Wilpon said.

When asked about signing Beltran to his huge deal, Wilpon said: "We had some schmuck in New York who paid him based on that one (playoff) series. He's 65 to 70 percent of what he was."
